“Marc Stone deftly mixes traditional blues, gospel, R&B and blues rock into a coherent musical continuum. He brings his abilities as an arranger and bandleader here and work hand in glove with producer Vasti Jackson. Stone is an excellent guitarist, especially on lap steel. He’s also an outstanding songwriter. These songs are presented in their very best light, and there is not a wasted note or throwaway idea on this riveting album from start to finish.” – John Swenson for OffBeat Magazine, New Orleans
“The highlight of the concert came clearly at the end of the evening with the Marc Stone Band. Funky, (and in part freaky), the steel guitar artist and his band from New Orleans created a party atmosphere and brought the audience to it’s feet with dancing, shouting and crying. With incredible ease and in splendid form, Stone played edgy blues well into the night.” – Appenzeller Zeitung, Switzerland
“The only two things Marc Stone carries are his Galveston-Steel-Guitar and his extraordinary voice. Christof Waibel seams to be his soul mate. There is only one word for what the two of them presented the audience of the K4 Kulturecafe: Brilliant!! The two professionals bring it to the point, and the music becomes alive. Stone involves the audience not only with his voice and his songs but also by creating a very special atmosphere.” – Füssener Blatt, Germany
“A true Blues diamond in the rough.” – Where Y’at Magazine, New Orleans
“The second line strut of “Tell Me” has a chorus that sounds like something Isaac Hayes might have written for Sam and Dave back in the day. Stone is also a masterful acoustic blues player.” – OffBeat Magazine, New Orleans
“One guitar, one chair, this pro doesn’t need more. From the first chord the crowd was rockin’.” – Kraichgau Stimme, Germany
